2019 MSFCA Annual Conference Vendor SHow

Duluth Entertainment Convention Center | 350 Harbor Dr, Duluth, MN 55802

The Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association will be hosting the 2019 Annual Conference at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center in Duluth, MN. Vendors will have the opportunity to network with fire service professionals from all over the state. Vendors can show their support for the MSFCA and register for exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities today. 


BIG CHANGES IN 2019! Exhibits are on THURSDAY ONLY this year!

The MSFCA leadership listened to the input from sponsors and took the evaluation feedback from attendees and vendors from last year’s event to heart when making some of these schedule changes and developing the new Sponsorship Program. 

From 1-8pm there are seven straight hours dedicated for attendees to be ONLY on the show-floor! Lunch, an afternoon break and the evening reception will all be in the exhibit area, and there are no educational sessions offered during this time.

After move-in hours Wednesday, vendors are welcome to join the attendees for the Wednesday reception (7-9pm), and are welcome to hold any hospitality events and receptions of their own after 9pm on Wednesday and/or after 8pm Thursday. Move-out may begin after 8pm Thursday, or anytime before noon Friday. 

(*No vendor activities should be scheduled during posted MSFCA event hours.)
